First the only saving grace it the reading of George Guidall, which as usual is superb. The plot is slow and boring, in that it has so many minutias, that I could not keep focus. Most of the time it did not matter, as these small details were not necessary in the whole picture. When you are listening, the minutia only detract from the plot.
I expected a typical Sherlock Holmes book with Dr. Watson as it was labeled as such.
The ended was disappointing and not fulfilling fo the plot. The will be a sequel or more using Moriarty in the U.S.
The reading was excellent
No! this one was enough.
I would leave out some of the medical details . It is a very impractical plot.
If you are not in the medical field you would constantly challenging the scenarios and if you are a layperson you would have difficulty understanding some of the situations. I know it is written by a physician, but is is more fantasy than reality.
Obviously the lead character, Chief resident Steve Mitchell as he solve the medical puzzle,
Sort of, but it was well read, allowing you to identify the characters.
No cause I never read or read the same book twice, as there are too many good books out there. to read.
The plot kept me very engaged
Cooper Dixon...he was the lead character
Neither, but it kept me interested in the storyline.
Listened to the book the narrator and the plot allowed me to not only listen but the visualize the scenes.
The print edition would allow you to re-orient to the character with the name.
Always Virgil Flowers
Good fast pace that kept you engaged
I have listened to most of John Sandford’s books and this is right up with the best. Eric Conger continues as an enjoyable narrator. The only negative is that there are many Middle Eastern character names and it is difficult to orient the listener which character they goes with the name.
NO, I do not listen or read any book twice
Yes, it kept your interest. I had listened to Power Down by Ben Coes and it was equally as gripping. You should listen to Power Down first as “Coup d'Eta” is a continuation of most of the characters.
Nearly everyone scene when Dewey Andreas get his revenge.
NO, but proud to be an American
David de Vries did an excellent job of narration.
Since I did not read the print edition I can not compare, but it was very easy to follow the audio edition
It was a little different, with the thought process of his police dog.
There was not one specific scene.
Not especially, but it could keep your interest
Enjoyable listen, especially Andrews narration
It was good listen, but not the cliff hanger of other mysteries.u
I think the ending wrapped it up
Of course Watson
It was good, but not in the style and character plot of ACD.
Typical Clancy espionage
Yes, but it was not as fast moving, with a lot detail that disrupted my concentration.
He is alway excellent
Future Cyber warfare could be today
The cyber attack are a real possibility. Having the President's son doing under cover in China is too unrealistic.
If you have read James Lee Burke previously, this is his typical combination of culture, history and philosophical narrative to understanding the bayou country of Louisiana, The plot is a little more non realistic than most of the previous Dave Robicheaux Novels. It is worth listening as the narrative flows well, especially read by Will Patton. He has the dialect and the distinctive voice change to pick out the individual characters.
Yes and No; It flowed well but there were some districting interludes that you could of done without.
Yes as noted above
Worth the listen
